Darian's Review:
Meeting Destiny is about Lauren, a young adult working at a fast food joint, stuck in a spark-less relationship with her friend Seth – and visited in her dreams by the man she knows she is meant to be with. During a failed robbery attempt at work, she meets the man in her dreams. Life takes a sudden turn, and she’s pulled in unimaginable directions.

This book started off with a bang. Right from the first few pages you’re thrown into action and soon after meet Max – the man invading her dream. There’s no doubt of the connection between them, and the confusion surrounding it, and you’re heartstrings are quickly pulled into the romance you hope blooms.

The characters were very easy to relate too, there’s not one that I didn’t enjoy, and each had their own voice. As a mystery buff, I also enjoyed the mystery aspect to this book. But I will say it threw me off a little bit, almost feeling like I had switched books somehow. The plot pace was fairly spot on throughout, except for a portion in the middle of the book that lagged a bit to me. The beginning and ending are definitely where the story shines the most.

Overall this was an enjoyable one to read, despite a stalling of pace. The ending was fantastic, an amazing cliffhanger! Straight created some very relatable and likeable characters, and the ending had me itching to read the next in the series.
